Brass bed assembly

Iíve just purchased a second hand brass bed. However, when assembling it became apparent that where the base and the head and foot frame connect there was no thread for the bolts provided and nothing to anchor the two pieces together.
Iíve attached some pics. I assume Iím missing some parts as I cannot work out how the bed base would securely attach to the brass head and foot frame with only bolts resting in the holes. Can anyone tell me whatís missing? Thanks in advance!

You probably need something like this.



Google "brass bed decorative nut" for more examples.

Thanks, appreciate the reply. Forgive me if Iím being dim, but where would it go? The hole in the brass head board isnít through and though so thereís no way I could get anything into the hollow tube to screw into.

Then you need a barrel nut that slips into the tube and the bolt screws into it.

If you don't know what thread your bolts have it would be a good idea to just buy new, matching bolts when you get some barrel nuts.

Answer

Weíve worked it out. For anyone else with a similar question, what we needed were rivet nuts and the nut, washers and bolts.


Thanks to everyone who took the time to help.
